Okay he's a pug but he has a bulldog heart. Isn't he cute?

Ah, Bulldog, the idiot child of the record. I mixed this three times until I got to this place with it. And now it's one of my favorites. I made some dumb decisions that sidetracked us for a while, like leaving in some crappy guitar stuff I'd done. Like thinking I wasn't going to put live drums on the song. But then I sucked all the extraneous crap and wrong intentions out of it and now I like this stripped-down version. I didn't want to give up on it because I like the words. And I really wanted a song to end the record in an upbeat way. Not that it's a particularly happy song, but it is a love song, and I wanted one in there somewhere. And I really do think love does save the day. Don't you?

I love the drum sound Rob got on this one. I love that little "sine" loop. This is going to be a fun one to perform. And it's the return of Beavis! I always see Gretchen doing her Beavis dance when I hear this one. It cracks me up.
